(SPOT.ph) With all eyes set on Clark, Pampanga as an up-and-coming tourism haven in the country, Clark International Airport adds a new terminal to accommodate the influx of tourists in the coming years. The new airport, more than being a gateway for a Philippine adventure, will also serve as a testimony to modern Filipino architecture through a locally-inspired design by Budji Layug and architect Royal Pineda.

This plan to exhibit the Filipino soul in an architectural landmark starts with the sweeping, multi-ridged roofline of the façade,which is inspired by the terrains of Mount Arayat (found 16 kilometers west of Clark), Mount Pinatubo (an active volcano 14 kilometers east of Clark), and the Sierra Madre (the Philippines' longest mountain range found in Luzon's eastern seaboard). The structure will make use of sustainable materials to complement the tropical vibe, while the interiors will showcase bamboo-made products and furniture, which Layug is known for. The designer won the National Commission for Culture and the Arts' (NCCA) Haligi ng Dangal Award for interior design in 2017.
